For the poll I chose Yes and I have changed as a result, but I could have also picked the yes, but I won't change option as well and both of those answers apply to me depending on the circumstance.
I have to agree I didn't know which poll answer to choose either. I guess I'll choose that I've changed or at least hope I have.

Love that spatter guard. I got it mostly because the stove is against a wall and I got tired of cleaning it so much.

Never happens when i simply chop and do not look. As far as burns goes, I only have one scar from pretty bad burn, otherwise I'm sure I had more, but since there is nothing to show, i do not really remeber them.
I bet with the borstch nobody ever knew a thing!

Worst thing that's happened to me was last year at school. I was boiling water for Cup Noodles (I don't wanna hear it!)....and I went to grab the pot. My hand slipped and I dropped it back on the burner and the water splattered all over me. I wasn't wearing a shirt.

clothes are certainly important. even the tiniest spatter of hot oil in the wrong place is like cooking for torquemada.

and don't forget gloves when chopping or cleaning really hot peppers. that's always fun when you rub your eyes or have to go to the bathroom.

however, my worst accident was while cleaning up. i pushed a sponge inside a large wine glass that had a teeny crack in it, and as i twisted the glass shattered in half, slicing off big chunks of skin on either edge of my hand. you could see the white bone of my index finger's knuckle.

Worst I had was when spreading oil on a red hot bbq plate with paper towels five years ago. Having a nice slurp of red and chatting to a guest at the same time Silly me!! Somehow or another, flipped the paper over onto back of hand. Oh! Oh! that was a bad one. Still have the scars.
Don't remember ever cutting myself. Dad was a great cook and taught me to use knives safely. He maintained that the sharper the knife, the less chance of cutting oneself. Seems to have worked for me.
